  fbdev/efifb: honour UEFI memory map attributes when mapping the fb (2018-07-11 11:23:26 +0200)

EFI changes for v4.19, batch #1:
- Perform UEFI runtime services calls from a work queue so the calls into the
  firmware occur from a kernel thread (Sai)
- Honor the UEFI memory map attributes for live memory regions configured by
  UEFI as a framebuffer. This works around a coherency problem with KVM guests
  running on ARM. (Ard)
- Cleanup for the x86 EFI stub code (Ingo)
- A timekeeping fix from Arnd
- Gradually phase out the DTB loader in the ARM version of the EFI stub. (Ard)
- Drop an unused function declaration (Sai)

Ard Biesheuvel (3):
      efi/libstub/arm: add opt-in Kconfig option for the DTB loader
      efi: drop type and attribute checks in efi_mem_desc_lookup()
      fbdev/efifb: honour UEFI memory map attributes when mapping the fb

Arnd Bergmann (1):
      efi: cper: avoid using get_seconds()

Ingo Molnar (1):
      efi/x86: Clean up the eboot code

Sai Praneeth (3):
      efi/x86: Use non-blocking SetVariable() for efi_delete_dummy_variable()
      efi: Use a work queue to invoke EFI Runtime Services
      efi: Remove the declaration of efi_late_init() as the function is unused
